Back To School Window

We've been nerd-ing it up with our window displays and have some really fun themes for the WHY Louisville window in the coming months.

Here is the "Back to School" window by our own Breonna Rossi.

We hope you like these window displays as much as we do. We'll be posting pics with each one.

Lady of Assemblage and her many aliases

Louisville's own Lady of Assemblage, aka Natalie Sud, aka Natasha, aka Natashalie, aka The Russian, aka Miss Sud (if you're nasty) now has lots of goodies at the WHY Louisville store.

One-of-a-kind Collages, a super-soft American Apparel track shirt with her design, magnets and postcards.

If you want to know more about this mysterious woman (and we know that you do), have a peek at her artist profile.

You can buy her shirt online here.

Modeling by Hunky Bruce-ster.

Library vs. Libary: The Answering Machine Message

Every once and a while, someone will call the store phone thinking we are the local news station. Our best theory on this is that "WHY Louisville" is listed next to local news stations like WHAS etc. Typically the callers are elderly and may have trouble reading the small text in the phone book.

Also, the calls can be quite humorous and/or creepy.

Click here to enjoy one of the best so far.

WHY Louisville Infomercials

We are well aware that we could never touch the greatness of local commercials such as Wild and Woolly Video and/or Attorney Daryl Isaacs (aka The Kentucky Hammer), but through the miracle of modern technology WHY Louisville has captured two very special 30 second spots.

Well, enjoy.
